What an amazing way to explore the city, and get to experience the tastes of Turkey! Our guide Ibrahim was really knowledgeable, great company, and took us to the local gems around the old city. Definitely arrive with an empty belly and a big appetite!

Touristic restaurants are fine... But LOCAL food, eaten where locals eat, is where it's at! We're so pleased you got to experience that. Hopefully, you'll come back to Istanbul soon so we can show you even more amazing local eats :)

We always recommend learning about the local food first, too - because what's a holiday without knowing all the best food spots ;) Thanks for spending the evening with us, see you next time you're in our beautiful city.

The food was delicious, plentiful, and varied. Every item I sampled was excellent, with the sole exception of the olives that were part of breakfast--and those olives were excellent olives, I just am not a fan of olives, though I always try to like them....More

Sultanahmet
With so many unmissable attractions within a mere
stroll of each other – and all set around the site of
an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an
overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a
prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly
epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the
Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this
relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to

Our tour was in English. Suggest you email them your questions via their website. They were very quick to respond to our emails and were very pleasant to deal with.
